"For several years I have used Idons most effectively
at boardroom and shop floor levels across the widest spectrum
of British and European commerce and industry. In each and every
case the hand-out notes created on "Idons-For-Thinking" (Version
1), have been a critical factor in effective follow-up. Indeed
I believe use of this software has given my consultancy practice
a serious and valuable competitive advantage. Having now worked
with the much enhanced "Version 2" I am most excited by the ease
of operation, range of options and sheer professional appearance
of the results obtained. Thank you to all at IDON for this invaluable
tool for my business."

"The use of Idon's visual tools has significantly enhanced student
engagement and involvement in group discussions as well as provoking
extremely favourable student feedback."

"I have used the Idon hexagon software from the
very first DOS version. It is a very powerful tool for stimulating
creative thinking and at the same time for bringing organisation
into chaotic thought patterns. It is way ahead of any comparitive
product that I have come across. This latest version has greatly
enhanced user friendliness and has pushed back the boundaries
of what can be achieved with this package even further. I use
the software to get order and logic into my scenario planning
exercises, to build system dynamics models and to plan and organise
the way I want to run my consultancy business. My children have
all used it very effectively to take the panic out of heavy exam
schedules right through to their finals. We wouldn't be without

" Idons-For-Thinking has become a powerful new tool in Ernst
&Young's ability to co-develop knowledge rich solutions with its
clients. The ability to brainstorm and share mental models is
a very powerful way of aligning agendas and people. The new web
version makes it even easier to share results."
Dr. Robin Wood, Ernst & Young
"I find the IDON methods and tools very useful in promoting learning
conversations and strategic thinking in a range of settings. Their
approach stands out as a real help in modernising the NHS to bring
about fundamental change."

"This is a must-have for any knowledge worker in the Knowledge
Economy – the software provides the tools to structure processes
that are inherently chaotic, such as envisioning futures, inventing
strategies and brainstorming good ideas."
